Retrieve last insert id by Eloquent in Laravel

 We know how to retrieve  last inserted id using raw query but there are different ways to get last inserted id using Eloquent.

Here is an example:

public function saveDetailsCompany()


    $post = Input::All();

    $data = new Company;

    $data->name = $post['name'];

    $data->address = $post['address'];

    $data->type = $post['type'];

    $data->fecha_created = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");

    $data->fecha_modified = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");

    if ($data->save()) {

        return Response::json(array('success' => true, 'last_insert_id' => $data->id), 200);



Another example for getting last insert id when using DB::insert is shown below.


You can also use insertGetId method and store it in a variable and  retrieve later when needed.

$id = DB::table('users')->insertGetId([

    'email' => '',

    'votes' => 0
